@AcademyDL Possibly, because it will still be cheaper to open/close channels on LTC.

@dgenr818 Miners will continue to collect on-chain transaction fees; it’s not possible to keep a payment channel open indefinitely.

@dgenr818 Yep, anyone who has invested in bitcoin can “stake” their coins on LN. Miners likely have plenty to stake!

@cjdcosta @el33th4xor @jonmatonis @francispouliot_ It’s quite relevant if the community rejects larger blocks, which seems to be the case. 😉

@SouperNerd Industry. The demand is strong. You won’t have any way to stop it - it will happen between large enterprises on the back end.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SouperNerd

If SegWit & LN don’t happen, we’ll implement payment channels that don’t allow miners to collect off-chain fees. twitter.com/lopp/status/87…

via Twitter Web Client

Miners may fear revenue loss due to Lightning Network “stealing” potential on-chain tx fees, but miners can run LN nodes & collect fees.

To reorg Litecoin far enough to deactivate SegWit & steal outputs would require over 10,823 L3+ ASICs: $14,828,075 + $685,771 of electricity
